Are any of the GApps pre-installed on your device? If so, the manufacturer might have "messed" with them, and broken the certificate. Or maybe you've installed some manipulated GApps package by accident. Flashing a different ROM (if available) might help then, or deleting the GApps manually and then re-load them. But in case it wasn't you bringing the GApps on the device in the first place, I'd rather first try contacting the service line (for warranty issues; though rooting the device might already have voided that, flashing a custom ROM will certainly do so, outside Europe).

1) Why all, if only one has problems? 2) Reconfigure them would require to have them all in reach.

Welcome to the Android Enthusiasts! Whilst this may theoretically answer the question, it would be preferable to include the essential parts of the answer here, and provide the link for reference. Otherwise, your answer becomes useless in case the link dies.

See: Where can I find stock or custom ROMs for my Android device?. When you found your ROM, you most likely found the instructions along.

comment Son erased the play store app
As the playstore app is a system app, it cannot be "erased by accident" (except with root-powers). So I second Poldie. To add: Also check settings→apps on the "all" tab. Maybe he just disabled it. If it's there and shows "disabled", open the entry, and tap the "enable" button.

You're correct in so far as it doesn't come pre-installed. There were rumours about CM opening its own store, but I've lost track on what was really done. Now that they're a company, and all the "ecosystem stuff" you were mentioning, they might really come up with something like that.
